Sex trafficking wasn't a major concern in the early 1980s, when Beth Jacobs was a teenager. If you were a prostitute, the thinking went, it was your choice.

Jacobs thought that too, right up until she came to, on the lot of a dark truck stop one night. She says she had asked a friendly-seeming man for a ride home that afternoon.

The Boston Citgo sign, all 3,600 square LED feet of which has served as the backdrop to Red Sox games since 1965, is now officially a "pending landmark."

Spanish Surrealist Salvador Dalí spent much of the 1940s in the U.S., avoiding World War II and its aftermath. He was a well-known fixture on the art scene in Monterey, Calif. — and that's where the largest collection of Dalí's work on the West Coast is now open to the public.

Originally published on April 15, 2013 2:48 pm

Jenna Bush Hager, daughter of former President George W. Bush and former first lady Laura Bush, gave birth over the weekend to a girl.

Margaret Laura "Mila" Hager is named for her grandmothers, the former president announced in a statement. According to The Associated Press, the little girl's nickname is pronounced MEE-luh.

Jenna Hager, now 31, is a Today Show correspondent. According to the show, husband Henry Hager says "both my girls are healthy and well." Mila weighed in at 6 pounds, 15 ounces.

CBS New York adds that earlier this month Jenna Hager "told People Magazine that her father, who has taken up art in his post-White House life, already has prepared three paintings for the baby — a portrait of the Hagers' cat, Bernadette, to place above the crib; landscape featuring a 'baby tree' from his Texas ranch; and a still life of the ranch's stone cross where the Hagers were married in 2008."

She also told People that her father has "become an artiste. There's a whole new side of him, and he's so excited about the baby."

Today has a series of photos of Mila, her parents and her grandparents.

Update at 9:05 a.m ET. Bush Says Painting Is "A Way To Create":

The former president tells The Dallas Morning News that "people are surprised" he's taken up painting. "Of course, some people are surprised I can even read," he adds.

Bush tells the newspaper that painting is "a way to create. I enjoy creating. ... You can express yourself in a way that's unique."
